University College Utrecht has two independent, affiliated student organisations:
- The University College Student Association (UCSA) contributes to all aspects of student life, and represents its members' interests.
- The University College Student Council (UCSC) is an elected student body that represents student interest in all academic matters.
Graduates may join a third organisation after graduating: the University College Alumni Association (UCAA).

COMPENSATION FOR BOARD ACTIVITIES
If you want to get involved in a governing or representative body at Utrecht University, you may qualify for financial support from the University in the form of a compensation for board activities.
Besides these student organisations, there are other initiatives that enrich your student life, such as Enactus.
Enactus is an international non-profit organization that brings together business and motivated student leaders who are committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to improve the quality of life and standard of living for not only those in need but for all of us. University College Utrecht has been a part of this global team since 2013 with numerous projects that are committed to using the power of social entrepreneurship to bring about results for real-world challenges.
Through its projects, student members get a chance to develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills through practical experiences; it enables them to apply concepts they learn in class to real world situations. University College Utrecht students are known for their critical thinking skills and ability to use their interdisciplinary approach to academics for out of the box solutions to global problems. Enactus provides them with a platform to realize these thoughts and create meaningful impact. They find additional support in achieving this through the larger Enactus network that holds events and workshops that prove useful to the members throughout their careers and professional lives.
